My artist

Leah is putting to use her new easel and canvas she got for Christmas.  The brushes and paint were from her brother.  She wanted to paint a leaf.  So I penciled one lightly for her.  She was very nervous when we started.  As time went on she become more comfortable.  She took her time. 
 We learned how to hold the paint brush, how to mix paints, using water to thin out the color, shading, and outlining.

She is a natural.  I wish I had a picture of his first canvas.  She wanted to give it to mamaw.  I hate to say it, but I am quite jealous.  It turned out beautifully!  Hopefully, I will get her second.  Im looking forward to watching her learn and grow in all the new things she tries.
